Overview:

The City Health Dashboard (“the Dashboard”) provides actionable city and neighborhood data on population health status, health determinants, and equity for 750+ U.S. cities with populations 50,000 or above, including 12 in New York State. These data include three education measures that can help demonstrate the link between quality education and health impacts across the lifespan. The Dashboard also includes educator resources to train the next generation of public health leaders. Learn about how health departments, policy makers, and other local stakeholders can use these tools to help communities address local health needs and pressing challenges, better target resources to areas with the largest health inequities, and develop more effective programs and policies.
